Lærke Grøntved (DK) (born 1988) is a choreographer, composer and performer. She graduated in Acting (BA) from Norwegian Theatre Academy, Fredrikstad, Norway 2015, with exchange in Contemporary Dance (BA) from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. In 2014, she received the Danceweb Scholarship to the international dance festival Impulstanz, Vienna, Austria. Lærke has choreographed “REactions – A Ballad Of Spectatorship”, and the piece has been showed in Montreal, Copenhagen and Prague. Autumn 2015 she performed with the American musician Bianca Casady (CocoRosie) on her Europe Tour, and performed at several venues in Denmark, Germany, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Italia, England and Austria, (ex. at DR Concert hall, München Kammerspiele and brut, Vienna.)
Lærke has been in 2015/2016 on residences in Budapest (SIN residency), in Trondheim (dansiT), in Hammerfest (Dansarena Nord), in Fredrikstad (Blå Grotte and Scene K60 Scenekunst Østfold), Gran (Glasslåven Art Center) and in Tallinn (Kanuti Gildi SAAL). She is developing works in collaboration with various artists for the dance, theatre and music scene. She is always looking for the spaces between the familiar and the uncanny, for the unpredictable and for another surprise around the corner. She is looking for opportunities to find out what live art can be and how it can feel like, and on this journey she is crossing the different borders of dance, film, theatre, architecture and music.
Lærke and Ann Mirjam are collaborating to create the theatre performance “Uncanny You” that is co-produced by Kanuti Gildi SAAL in Tallinn, Estonia where it will premiere in September 2017. The project is also supported by Teater Momentum in Denmark and TOU Scene in Norway.
